November 27, 2015 10:00 am by Russell Ess

Former lightweight champion Benson Henderson often had to strip down butt naked and have UFC officials hold a towel in front of the weigh-in crowd to ensure making the 155-pound lightweight limit.

Henderson who is now fighting at the 170-pound welterweight division in Seoul, South Korea against Jorge Masvidal on Nov. 28 and once again had to get every piece of his clothing off.  During the weigh-ins for UFC Fight Night 79, Henderson got down to his birthday suit to ensure making weight and came in at 170-pounds.

Do you think Benson Henderson had a hard time cutting to the welterweight limit? Will it have an effect on his performance against Masvidal?
